An All-New 2.7L Turbo Engine Makes the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Even More Efficient & Fun


Recently introduced to the updated 2019 Chevrolet Silverado lineup is the all-new 2.7-liter Turbo engine that offers a wide range of exciting capabilities to the fan-favorite pickup truck. Not only is this new powertrain more powerful and efficient overall, the 2019 Chevy Silverado while equipped with the 2.7L Turbo is also 380 pounds lighter than the current model equipped with the 4.3-liter V6 engine--despite its roomier interior and extra cargo space. Chevrolet Silverado Chief Engineer Tim Asoklis said this of the exhilarating new engine option: “The new Silverado 2.7L Turbo delivers impressive performance and fuel efficiency. It’s fun to drive every day — quick from the start and pulling hard under acceleration. With up to 23 mpg on the highway, the [Silverado] is efficient while still offering plenty of capability to tackle weekend projects and trips to the lake.”

Thanks to months of nonstop testing including over 475,000 validation tests and 1 million miles of real-world experience, the new 2.7L Turbo engine arrives standard on the LT and RST trims of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and delivers powerful, reliable performance that defines the Chevy brand. With 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque, the all-new 2.7 Turbo engine outperforms competitors such as Ford and Ram by over 29 percent! And if you’re wanting to test the Chevy Silverado’s raw speed, you’ll get to see how the 2.7L Turbo engine helps propel the hefty Silverado from 0-60 miles per hour in a zippy 6.8 seconds. If it’s heavy-duty hauling and towing you’re after, the all-new 2.7L Turbo engine in the Chevrolet Silverado has a max payload of 2,280 pounds and a max towing capacity of 7,200 pounds. No matter what the task may be, the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado equipped with the 2.7L Turbo engine will be able to get it done.
